Hello everyone!! How is everyone enjoying their summer (or almost summer)? We were sick this week, so didn’t get out of the house very much until the weekend. And then we had a fun packed weekend!!
We got on a little camping trip with our church on Friday night. It wasn’t anything big, we were in the middle of Ogden, 20 minutes away from our house. So not “real” camping, but still sleeping outside in a tent.
I’m not a big camper, I love the outdoors, I just don’t love sleeping outside. I don’t sleep well at all, plus I have a really bad back. So I just don’t sleep well outside. This is the first time that we have gone camping for 6 years (well at least me, my husband has taken my older boys). The last time we went camping we ended up going home at 3:00am because my son was screaming so much and we didn’t sleep at all. So I thought I would try it again.
The night is about how I expected…. we didn’t sleep much. All the kids got to sleep a little before midnight (which was pretty good for us) but then my baby woke up around 4:00am and then was up for 3 hours. Then my 5 year old woke and said he wanted to go home. I think my husband and I got about 2 hours of sleep.
Here they are sleeping after everyone was awake, super cute huh?
I’m thinking we will try camping one more time and then hopefully it will be better.
This weekend we met up with a bunch of my husband’s friends from high school. It’s so crazy to see how much everyone has changed (the last time was 6 years ago). Everyone seems to look the same but the number of kids has definitely multiplied!
I hope that everyone is having a great weekend!!

What an adventure, LOL!
Maybe try again when they are older?
I am not big on camping myself!
I went camping once with my son in a friends backyard, that was OK. She had a big property and a pool and invited a bunch of people so I had friends camped right beside us. That was just one night, just to have a taste, same as you! Your babies look like angels!!!
